I love her regular voice but all the main character's friends seem to have a deep weird voice, particularlly for women. I liked the book, it was a light "read" and want to listen to more but I'm not sure I can get past the low monotone voice the narrator uses for everyone else in the story. It's kind of weird.
I'm so sad the narrator changed the voices. I was in love with this series and so happy to discover it since there are so many books and they are all awesome but the narrators characters and voices was what made them addictive. I started listening to a bit of the next book and it seems like peabody didn't fully come back - does it change back to normal in future books?
I have to be honest, even though these books have their flaws, I got one when Audible had the $4.95 series special. Since then I haven't even waited for my credits, I've bought them all. The author and the narrator are really growing on me and I hope I see a new book in this series soon.
You know - I do listen to all Carol Higgins Clark books because they are fluff and easy to listen to but always, in my opinion, kind of goofy and remind me somehow of teenager or kids books with the goofy names to the goofy premise and crazy characters. This book is no exception. It is chock full of irritating characters on a "santa" cruise and being almost done with this audio book - I still can't tell you exactly what the point of it is LOL Happy Holidays!
I have read a lot of comments about the narrator and I personally liked the voices and enjoyed the book. I thought it was pretty funny, not really what I expected but I still liked it alot.
I have to admit that I was not at all impressed with R is for Ricochet and was really looking forward to the next volume in the series. I also have to admit that I hate reading Sue Grafton's books but Judy Kaye, the reader, is so great and humourous that I have become addicted to Sue Grafton Audio Books. I have all of them (A - S).
In S is for Silence, the flash backs and lack of climax and when the mystery was solved it made no sense to me and I still have no idea what the motive of the killer was. I was also disappointed that they did not focus at all on the previous volumne including no mention of Henry, Rosie, Chaney or any of the other regulars. All in all it wasn't horrible but it was not good at all.
